Wordpress Overview

What is Wordpress?

WordPress is a website and blog creation and publishing platform with tools for aesthetic designing, visitor tracking, content storage and upload, and more. With WordPress users can get a blog or website, or both, started in very little time, using only an email address. Users get their own WordPress.com address (like you.wordpress.com), 3 gigabytes of free file storage, and a selection of pre-made, free, and customizable designs for the blog, and many other features.

When setting up a WordPress website, users can add a custom domain and manage design, layout, and content from within the platform. Written content can be easily added and work is automatically saved every few seconds to avoid loss of content. The drag and drop editor facilitates the addition of images or videos into posts and pages, and users can create photo galleries, embed audio, and stream video from their website. With WordPress, users can blog as much as they want for free, and blogs and websites can be public to the world or private for just friends.

Additional features of WordPress include built-in social sharing to spread the word of new posts or content, in-depth statistics and visual analytics to gain insight into website visitors and demographics, and search engine optimization (SEO) tools to help new visitors find the website.

One of the best website managers out there

It has been a very good experience to get to know wordpress and use it. It has granted us a great tool to manage websites, blogs, communities and landing pages. There is a lot of tutorials and information around, you just have to have the will (and/or time) to keep updating.

Wordpress, the base of all entrepreneurship on the internet.

Since I started using wordpress I have become a fanatic. It has allowed me to create countless web projects, of the highest quality, thus being able to compete with companies from all over the world, and at a professional level.
Wordpress has really accompanied me in the growth of my company for years. I would not change it for anything.

Wordpress as a Designer/user

It was neutral to positive experience for me using wordpress. Since I have an engineering and programming background I was able to do quite a bit in a short amount of time. It is a great platform to use for someone who is looking to just have a simple website with basic information and nothing complex. I think it is very intuitive and useful for bloggers.

Wordpress review

I am huge fan of Wordpress and I consider it to be the world's most integrated and fast evolving Content Management system. I use it regularly for all my sites, blogs and WooCommerce shops. I would definitely recommend it to any administrator and end-user.

I started with a tiny WooCommerce site, and have since managed several small sites and one larger one. WordPress is the Android of the CMS world: the opposite of a walled garden, it comes with a multitude of possibilities and nearly as many pitfalls.
One tip: the right plugins make all the difference. Some of my favorites: SearchWP and FacetWP for content sites, PhastPress, and WooCommerce Services.

It has been a very good experience to get to know wordpress and use it. It has granted us a great tool to manage websites, blogs, communities and landing pages. There is a lot of tutorials and information around, you just have to have the will (and/or time) to keep updating.

Pros

WordPress is one of the best website managers and content creators. It has tons of templates, addins and is supported almost everywhere (even if you want to install it locally). We have used our website with WordPress for more than 4 years and everytime we need to update or upgrade it, is as simple as to look for a new template, create a backup, install the template and customize it a little bit and in less than a week (sometimes even days) we have it up and running

Cons

The con I could find on Wordpress is that it can sometimes be difficult to keep an eye on the new versions of everything you install. There are updates for the theme, the addins, the plugins, the connectors, etc. What we have agreed to do is to always look to minimize the addons we select for our website to keep this controlable but there is always some antispam addin or comments addin you will eventually need. And sometimes, with the updates, you can get your site broken.

Since I started using wordpress I have become a fanatic. It has allowed me to create countless web projects, of the highest quality, thus being able to compete with companies from all over the world, and at a professional level.
Wordpress has really accompanied me in the growth of my company for years. I would not change it for anything.

Pros

1- Easy to implement. Anyone in just minutes can have a basic and scalable website online, without having to know programming or web design.
2- Short learning curve. In a short time, anyone can become a professional using wordpress.
3- Flexibility. Wordpress allows you to create very powerful sites, and have control of the design, creating custom sites.
4- A very active community of help and creation of resources. You can always find documents, plugins, themes and more ...
5- Scalable. Wordpress allows you to always start and keep your projects updated, but above all it allows you to scale them, turning a site that was once very basic into a true professional project.
6- Infinity of free and paid resources.
7- 100% compatibility. Today wordpress has such a large community of users and developers, that it is almost impossible that there are not companies that do not develop plugins for what one imagines.
8- Competitiveness. Wordpress has allowed me to stay ahead of the game, and compete with professional-level sites, even though it's just me working alone as a freelancer.

Cons

1- with free or freemium themes or plugins many times you do not get all the customization you would like.
2- despite the fact that the Spanish-speaking community that uses wordpress is growing, it is still quite difficult to find so many options for themes or plugins in Spanish, compared to what there is in English, which are far surpassed, having more variety and even quality in some cases.

It is a great platform to use for someone who is looking to just have a simple website with basic information and nothing complex. I think it is very intuitive and useful for bloggers.

Pros

I used this software to build a website for a Non-Profit foundation for some fundraising events. I got an account with Bluehost server and wordpress was included in it. For someone who has never built a website before, wordpress did make my life very very easy. It has numerous features that can definitely help a novice like me get a basic website up and running. I enjoyed the following things while using this
- Themes
It comes with some basic theme templates which can be used to build the website. Just fill in some information that relates to your website and it will populate it. Think of it as a powerpoint template with boxes and design
- Easy to upload pictures
I was able to create folders and stores pictures on there and name them accordingly so I can go back and use them on different pages.
- Widgets and Plugins
The main attraction for this software platform I believe is their built in widgets and plugins. You can download from so many options. It is kind of like exploring the app store on your phone. Since it is an open source lot of users create their own widgets and plugins which are either free or you can purchase it. Needless to say purchased ones are much better but I got by with all free ones.
- Edit code
yes if you are a very savvy css html developer and you understand the code, you can go in and change their code and make adjustments.
Warning: Don't mess with it if you don't know what you are doing

Cons

The cons that i noticed in my website after it went live was
- Speed
The website was just slow. I am not sure if it is because of the widgets and plugins running on wordpress but I hated the speed.
- Updates could ruin website
Their themes get constantly updated so if you do not update it properly or if the new build released has a bug on it, it could mess up certain things on your website. This happened to many times where the plugins that worked fine on the older build wouldn't work the same on the new.
- Time consuming for beginners
Yeah it's not as simple as I was expecting it to be. I did spend quite an amount of time understanding the features and how to make best use of them. It was a lot of trial and error so be ready to put in some work at least.

Pros

I enjoy the fact that Wordpress is very frequently updated and enriched with new cutting edge features. I also enjoy the fact that it supports a multitude of plugins (both free and paid) covering a wide range of applications and thus making Wordpress a very flexible and extensible framework. It is based on open technologies (PHP) and supported by all major web hosting providers as well as by Wordpress.com as an additional hosting option.

Cons

I think more work can be done to improve the ease of use of Wordpress built-in editor. I would like to see it being as close to a standard document editor experience, such as Microsoft Word or Libre/Open Office.

One tip: the right plugins make all the difference. Some of my favorites: SearchWP and FacetWP for content sites, PhastPress, and WooCommerce Services.

Pros

Although setting up WordPress has its pain points (more below) the advantages are so strong that, for budget entrepreneurs and publishers it would be difficult to consider another CMS as competition. I apreciate the open-source model which allows for so many plugins to extend functionality; the price of the core offering (free); the supportive community; and the ability to customize deeply.

Cons

WordPress is an open-source offering. As such, it may not give you the results you want unless you are either comfortable with writing PHP/JS/CSS or paying someone else to do so. However, even a non-technical person can, with a little patience and some good tutorials, set up a functioning site.
